Ok I decided enough was enough the other day and I'm pretty psyched about going vegan now. So I was wondering what I need to get next time I go shopping (pay next wed. Yay!).<br><br><br><br>
I've heard about Nutritional Yeast but I don't know what the brand name is in Aust. Is it the same as normal [active] yeast?<br><br><br><br>
I've got Vitari (forest berries) down instead of soy-ice cream because I don't really like soy much and frozen fruit seems like a better option to me. Apart from the usual fake meat I eat and tofu I can't think of anything else I need to get? I'm looking for soy-cheese but I've beentold there is only creamed varieties available here.<br><br><br><br>
BTW anyone know of a 'creamer' available here? I've been using Oatmilk in coffee but the coffee is still so dark I may as well drink black but I prefer it ligher for psychological reasons I guess. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
I can't find any Kosher supermarkets outside of the Sydney CBD either which is a pain because that means no Jelly (Osem). <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":(">

I live in Aus..what was your question? There is no food you must get as a vegan, but if you were looking for specific vegan foods i'll help you out (apart from the creamer/jelly...no luck with that)

The Nutr. Yeast I get is from Lotus (savoury yeast flakes). They're about $8 for 100g, but can last a while (unless you make the melty-cheese recipe on the back).<br><br><br><br>
Also check out Kingland for cheese-type stuff (I found some of their products yucky though, but their cheddar-style cheese is nice.... Coles should have it).

I guess what I meant was - vegan brands of products I already buy e.g. deoderant, shampoo, pasta, sauces etc.

Deoderant - Evoke, The Body Crystal or various natural deoderants (eg Tea Tree) from health food shops.<br><br>
Shampoo - I think Herbal Essences is okay. The Shampoo, Conditioner and Body Wash I buy is called Nature's Organics and is available in most supermarkets. Also, at Priceline, their own brand is vegan.<br><br>
Pasta and Sauces - Majority are vegan so just have a look at the labels to double check.

This repeats some of what iceflower said.<br><br><br><br>

Nature's Organics (no animal ingredients/testing, 100% Aussie). <a href="http://www.naturesorganics.com.au/" target="_blank">http://www.naturesorganics.com.au/</a><br><br><br><br>
Deodorant:<br><br>
OK Tea Tree (no animal ingredients/testing, 100% Aussie). <a href="http://www.thursdayplantation.com.au" target="_blank">http://www.thursdayplantation.com.au</a><br><br>
The Body Crystal Mist (pump bottle, no animal testing/ingredients). <a href="http://www.bodycrystal.com.au" target="_blank">http://www.bodycrystal.com.au</a><br><br>
Desire (no testing, not sure about ingredients).<br><br><br><br>
Toothpaste:<br><br>

I've seen and tried a couple of other brands but can't recall them.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au/ppls1.htm" target="_blank">http://www.choosecrueltyfree.org.au/ppls1.htm</a><br><br><br><br>
The only pasta I use is San Remo (<a href="http://www.san-remo.com.au/" target="_blank">http://www.san-remo.com.au/</a>) wholemeal (I don't like white pasta much anymore). And the pasta sauce I use is usually Paul Newman's Sockarooni (it gives instructions on the back at the end of which it states "non-vegetarians may want to add meat").

Shampoo etc for me is all the same so that isn't much of a change., but are those deoderants any good? I use Dove normally and haven't used anything else for years. I'm picky about that.
